31 Weeks

Here's the latest belly shot from 31 weeks. 
I went to Dr. Weisert yesterday and everything looks great!  My blood sugars are good, my cervix is "a rock," I'm finally drinking enough water (1.25 gallons a day) and I gained 2 pounds!  

I know, as someone who has always struggled with my weight, I would usually lament gaining weight, but this pregnancy has actually been really hard for me to put on the required weight.  All the books recommend gaining at least 35 pounds with twins (even for someone with my Body Mass Index).  I had gained about 15 pounds, but then lost 3 in the past month, which Dr. W wasn't so happy with.  So, we were both happy to see me up 2 pounds!  


So, I know lots of pregnant ladies take beautiful photos of their gorgeous stretch-mark free bellies to post, but unfortunately my tummy is not so flawless regardless of the amounts of Curel Pregancy lotion I slather on it.  

Last night, our friend Tony brought over a honey-dew melon and when I saw it I laughed out loud.  It reminds me of a certain belly I know (popped belly button and all)!
